Help Wanted

Help is needed by all serious genealogists to index images that can be viewed free of charge.    For those of you who are unaware of this project, the majority of the films in the vast collection of the Family History Library are being digitalized for display free on-line.    Those records need to be indexed.    For close to two years, volunteers have been indexing many records but volunteers are needed to continue this project.

Some of those already indexed projects can be viewed on a pilot site that can be reached here:
FamilySearch Record Search

New information is being added almost daily so be sure to check back often.

If you want to volunteer to index various records, you can do so here:

Volunteer to Index

The more volunteers the faster records will be made available on-line.

It doesn't take long to do a page of records.

Current projects include those in English, Spanish, French, German and Italian.

Doing this can help you in your own research as you become familiar with old handwriting and various forms.

I have been doing it for about 9 months now. Most of the time it takes about 20 minutes to index a page. It is real simple if you can read the image.
